What would look best, white lettering on the outside or black wall on the outside?

    they have nice white walls, but it makes them look smaller. i went with black walls on mine, and am pretty happy.

    I just had to replace one of my Duratracs due to a nail in the sidewall.

    I was told that they are no longer making the white lettered version, only black. (not that I wanted the white letters, but when trying to find the same model # they were having trouble finding them)

    My new one has black lettering on both sides.

    Never liked white letters so black out for me. Red clay will really stain those white letters so jf you drive in it then black for sure.

    Nice baja! Looks like you raised the rear a bit or is it just me?

    And this, kids, is why you don't create a poll with no expiration date.

    Back roughly around the time that the original poster originally asked this question - I also bought some brand new tires... And just this week - I retired them with over 45,000 miles on them.

    And people are *still* voting on this original poll, telling the guy what color to buy. :rolleyes:

    I used to say black out no questions asked. After I blacked out my truck with the white stockers white-side-out, I actually like the look and think it adds to the truck.

    When I put my tracs on I told the guy mounting them that I wanted the black walls out. When they wheeled it back out the white lettering was out. The more I looked at it the more I liked it. Ended up just keeping it that way and I think it was the right move.
